Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Grey flint scraper, as kindly identified by the finder. A small thumbnail scraper, with a broad convex flake struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb on the ventral surface. Misty white patina has developed over the object, and is removed by very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect. This may indicate the reuse of a small fragment of debitage. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.
